Last week, however, I was sent the B. Foundation Brush by Product Testing UK as a sample so I could do a review of the product. Despite the fact that I don't particularly like using these brushes, I was more than happy to try it out and give it a fair test.
In terms of the build of brush, the 100% synthetic bristles feel fairly soft and quite firm, which I definitely feel you need with a foundation brush. I wouldn't say it's as comfortable to use as what I would normally use, mainly because the bristles are perhaps that little bit harsher and for reasons that I will explain below. I do like the actual handle on the brush as I feel that it is the perfect thickness to hold in my hand, making it comfortable to move and generate the circular motions you need to buff the foundation in. It has a smooth paint over the handle, which doesn't irritate your fingers and generally just makes it easy to hold.
Overall, I'm not the biggest fan. This may be because I have been ruined by my current foundation brush, but overall I don't think I'll be using it again. I may consider using it to apply concealer or liquid contours but, otherwise, I'm really just not that impressed with the finish it gives or the time it takes to buff my foundation in.
